HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 c195W
51. Mr. Kenneth Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will seek powers to repay to the Football Association the amount of £249,167 paid in tax on the World Cup Series in order that this can be made available to football generally, and especially poorer clubs.

Mr. Diamond

The Football Association, like any other taxpayer, will have to meet its statutory tax liability after that has been determined following production of the relevant figures.
